Marital/couple therapy is a process through which a couple (who may be engaged, dating, married, partnered) works with a trained therapist to identify specific areas or aspects of their relationship which they would like to change. A plan of action is developed with the goal of improving overall relationship satisfaction and contentment.
Klauke Counselling Services provides a safe and confidential setting, where you are able to explore your relationship. Sessions may take in to account how your beliefs, thoughts, and behaviours may be impacting your relationship in both positive and negative ways. Often, family of origin is explored to recognize and manage its influence on your relationship. You will be assisted in addressing any immediate and pressing problems, as well as developing strategies to promote the long-term health and happiness of your relationship.
Family therapy helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts and is usually provided by a therapist with specific training and experience in family and group therapy techniques. Family therapy is based on family systems theory and views the family as a living organism rather than just the sum of its individual members. Family members are considered in terms of their position or role within the system as a whole and issues are treated by changing the way the system works rather than trying to fix a specific member.
Klauke Counselling Services will meet with all your family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after therapy sessions have come to a close. In family therapy, you may wish to address a specific problem, such as an adolescent conflict or you may be seeking assistance in adjusting to a major life event such as a death in the family. Often, underlying issues hindering the family process are identified and can be addressed in session.
Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist to explore their feelings, beliefs or behaviours in order to work through challenging or influential memories, to identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, to better understand themselves and others, to set personal goals, and to work toward desired change.
Klauke Counselling Services will provide a safe, caring and confidential environment for you to address the issue you want to address through therapy. You may be facing major life challenges, trying to manage depression or anxiety or simply looking to increase self-awareness. You will be assisted in gaining this awareness and will be encouraged to develop an intentional response to it.
Life coaching varies from other services provided in that it draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from several disciplines with an aim toward helping people identify and achieve personal goals.
Klauke Counselling Services will join with you and rather than focus on a particular presenting problem or issue, will focus on identifying and building on your strengths to enhance life satisfaction. You will be encouraged to be proactive and move from good toward better as opposed to moving from problem to solution.
Psycho-education can be also considered “life skills training.” Similar to life coaching, this service is not usually problem oriented or pursued because something isn’t working. Rather, psycho-education is oriented toward enhancing life and improving abilities in specific life skills.
Klauke Counselling Services will assist you in developing specific skills such as communication, parenting, assertiveness, time management or financial management. You will be better equipped for facing a life challenge or facing a developmental life stage.
